Congress Homepage


ARGUMENT: Dated around the beginning of 1990s, the impacts and social consequences of the third wave of globalization on a world scale cause significant transformations in the social, political and economic environment. The interrelated disciplines of political science, economics and sociology perform the most important function in accounting for these significant transformations. The social, political and economic effects of globalization has also significant local resonances. The primary aim of the congress is to investigate these local resonances of global transformation processes through the studies of researchers from different disciplines. By this means the congress both tries to contribute to the development of scientific researches in Turkish academic environment and to provide new perspectives towards local politics in the course of bringing together the analysis of socio-economic and political dynamics of local-global nexus.
